A coastal village and well known holiday resort having some exceptional beaches, Heacham can be found in Norfolk, East Anglia, between the resort of Hunstanton and the large town and port of King's Lynn. The village has a populace of about 4,707 inhabitants and is perhaps most famous for its historic connections with the Indian Pocahontas, who married John Rolfe, a tobacco grower, who was born in Heacham. Heacham is also reputed for its lavender fields, nurtured here by the Norfolk Lavender Ltd ever since they came to Heacham in the 1930s.

St Mary, Heacham, Norfolk - geograph.org.uk - 310386The village started to become fashionable as a coastal resort in in the mid-nineteenth century, simply because of the coming of the railway line between Hunstanton and King's Lynn in the early 1860s. That resulted in the building of the Jubilee Bridge in the eighteen eighties taking the place of the olden timber bridge. Heacham continues to be well-liked nowadays as a tourist resort, with both South and North Beach dotted with caravan and camping sites.

The shorelines at this point are situated on the easterly shores of The Wash, therefore it is one of few beaches on the east coast of England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.

The Historical Past of Heacham: It is very likely approximately 5 millenia since the initial human settlements took place in the vicinity surrounding Heacham, the uncovering of Neolithic and Bronze Age artefacts, gives evidence of that. Settlement continued there through the Iron Age and into Roman times, whilst it was in all likelihood not till the 5th century when the 1st actual village was founded there. The name is believed to be taken from the name of a local Norman Lord in the 1300s, called Geoffrey de Hecham, even though there is not any solid evidence that this is true. Still another possibility is, the name originates from the close by River Hitch.

Noted in the Domesday Book of 1086 as being included in the Smethdun (Smithdon) hundred, Heacham at that time consisted of 143 households (making it pretty large for the times) and the manor was owned by William of Warenne. At the time of the 1066 Norman Conquest the village was overseen by a pair of Saxons, Toki of Walton and Alnoth. It was then controlled by Cluniac Monks, until following the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, when the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk.

The most ancient surviving structure in Heacham is the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, built in Norman style and was completed in 1230, one of its bells is in truth even older than the church itself, dating from around 1100, one of the most ancient bells still existing in England. Heacham's village sign as well as a tablet inside the church recall the historic links with the red indian, Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, of Heacham Hall, in Virginia in sixteen fourteen. She was only 22 when she died 3 years later, though she produced a son, Tom, he eventually returned to America. Heacham Hall survived for centuries but was finally destroyed by fire in the 1940s.

In nineteen thirty two Norfolk Lavender Ltd was established in Heacham with a partnership being set up involving local nurseryman Linn Chilvers and a landowner called Francis Dusgate, for the purpose of harvesting and distilling of lavender and associated products. By 1936 there were a hundred acres being cultivated. Ever since those early years the enterprise has evolved significantly, and different types have been nurtured. Lavender is now exported all around the world.
